Alleged BJs in the Bathrooms at Armani; TotG's Last Donation

MIDTOWN— From a hilarious review of Midtown's Armani Ristorante in the Zagat listings: "Would Mr. Armani approve of this??? B***-J*** in the bathroom and Poorly Paced Courses Marred an Otherwise Great Italian Meal. Our meal was punctuated by a man getting a BJ in the bathroom and by Francesco, the Maitre D', denying that he had any control over his guests. Nevertheless, he should have had control over four courses being served at once as the kitchen staff wanted to leave early. I am sure Mr. Armani would not approve." [Zagat]

CELEB CHEFDOM— In honor of Nigella Lawson's 50th birthday this weekend, those cheeky lads at the Daily Mail have dug up 50 nasty little tidbits that you probably didn't know about the celeb chef. For those without the patience, here's the shorthand: she washes her hair once a week, never looks in the mirror, loves slankets, once ate 20 pickled eggs in ten minutes for a bet, and while she doesn't generally wear any underwear, she buys her lingerie from the same shop the Queen does. But really, who knew Nigella was 50? [DM via Eater National]
